19. chapter 19



“Wakey wakey, eggs and bakey!” A deep voice sang in my ear

 “Go away!” I whined putting a pillow over my head.

 "WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE, UP!” Harry chanted as he jumped up and down on the bed.

 “You’re worse than Louis!" I said chucking my pillow at Harry.

 “Good now get up.” He demanded.

 I sat up glaring at Harry “I’m up, see my eyes are open.” I said pointing to my wide eyes. “Now if you’ll leave so I can go back to bed that would be greatly appreciated.” I huffed pulling the comforter over my head. Harry let out a sigh, I could almost see him shaking his head chuckling softly to himself as he ran hands through his hair. The extra weight from Harry released on the bed, I let out a sigh relaxing back into the bed before a cold breeze fell over me, I grumbled flipping over onto my stomach, “Not funny Harry” I said with my face berried into a pillow.

 “Don’t be such a buzz kill” Harry said I could tell he had dropped the comforter as I herd it crinkle When Harry kicked it to the side.

 “Don’t be such buzz kill” I mocked.

 “Are you mocking me?” Harry fake gasped. He was closer, much closer to me this time.

 “Harry don’t…” I said sternly.

 “Don’t what?” he asked innocently.

 “I don’t know, but whatever you are thinking… don’t do it.” I said bracing myself for what was going to come next. I let out a shriek when Harry’s hands found their way around my waist tickling my sides.

“You mean this?” He asked slowly in my ear, my breathing hitched as he began to violently tickle me.

“H-Harry… St-Stop!” I stuttered.  “Harry? W-what are you d-doing?” I asked worriedly as Harry looked at me with a sly smile before taking a hold of my waist and hoisting me over his shoulder. “Harry!” screamed “Put me down, right now”

“I am afraid I cannot do that.” He said as he walked me through my house. I tried hitting him in the back but even I knew that would never work.

Harry finally placed me on my feet in the, bathtub? I raised my eyebrow at Harry. “Take a shower, you smell bad.” He said turning around to head out the door.

“Wow, way to make a girl feel special.” I said crossing my arms over my chest.

“I was kidding! But seriously, get ready; I’m taking you out for breakfast.”  

My eyes widened shit, its Friday I still have school “What time is it?” I asked frantically.

“10am” Harry said calmly. “Don’t worry; your mum said you can have the day off, in going to help you get ready for tonight.” Harry said with a smile. “And she may know about what happened last night.” Harry mumbled while rubbing the back of his head sheepishly.

I hopped out of the tub and lifted Harry’s head so he would look at me, his green eyes shining brightly as he looked me in the eyes. “Thank you.” I said sincerely. Harry nodded his head still looking at me “Now,” I said clapping my hands together “I and going to take a shower so… shoo!” I said ushering Harry out of the door

“You know I could help you shower” Harry winked.

I rolled my eyes as I slammed the door in his face “Kiss my ass” I yelled through the door.

“Gladly!” Harry chirped

“Pig.” I scoffed.

“I herd that!” Harry said slamming a hand on the door.

“Good” I chucked “that was the point” I said rolling my eyes as I striped and stepped into the shower. I got lost in the shower singing a tune that popped into my head “Look at the stars, 

look how they shine for you, 

and everything you do, 
Yeah, they were all yellow.
I came along, 
I wrote a song for you, 
and all the things you do, 
and it was called "Yellow".”  
I sang as I washed my hair, I was still humming the tune when I opened the door, startled to see Harry standing there with his jaw dropped “Close your mouth would you? Your going the ketch a fly.” I said walking to my room with Harry hot on my heals.

 “You never tolled me you sing!” Harry said as I entered my room

“Look I sing, don’t make a deal about it, Please.” I said turning to face Harry as I leaned against the doorframe with my towel still wrapped around me.

“Does anybody know you sing?” Harry asked

“Of course, my family, Sam, Jake and The other boys know, but the other boys know and didn’t make a big deal about it, so you shouldn’t either.” I said closing the door so I could change.

 “The boys know!” Harry said. 

“Yes Harry.” I sighed as I pulled on a pair of pants. “It’s not a secret; I just don’t go out and try out for some singing show to get noticed.” I shrugged realizing Harry couldn’t really see me; I pulled my sweatshirt over my head and opened the door to let Harry in.

“Does this look fine?” I asked looking at my full length mirror, it wasn’t really directed at Harry but he took the indicative to check out what I had on; a simple pair of black jeans and a pink oversized knitted sweatshirt hung off my shoulders.

Harry smiled “You look wonderful.” He said

“Ha, thanks, you don’t look too bad yourself I said eyeing him up the same way he did to me. He was wearing a pair of dark blue skinny jeans, a black t-shirt and a dark green hoodie. “Ready to go?” I asked taking my white beanie from my desk and putting it on my head. “What?” I asked Harry who was just looking at me oddly.

“Erm… n-nothing” Harry said shaking his head.

“No, What?”

“Nothing, just I didn’t even see you walk over to your makeup table.”

“Yea? And…”

“Well I have just never seen a girl leave the house without putting some sort of makeup on.” Harry said

“Well I’m not those girls, I don’t have anybody to impress and it doesn’t matter to me anyways, I don’t need it, and it’s just a hassle to take on and off.” I shrugged “Can we go now?”

“Uh, yeah, sure.” Harry said


 “So that song…” Harry started as we were driving in his rental vehicle

 “What about that song?” I asked curiously.

“Why did you choose to sing that song?” He asked, I knew where this was going, at first I thought I had picked the song at random, but then it clicked why he was asking, that was the first song he sung to me, when we were dancing at the restaurant.

“Um no?” I questioned playing it off as is I didn’t remember.

“Oh…” Harry said, he looked almost… disappointed? I let it drop as we pulled up to a small Diner just outside of town. I had seen this place before, but why would I remember it? It was so out of the way.

“Where did you find this?” I asked Harry

He just shrugged, “Niall needed some place to eat before we went to see you guys.” Harry turned the engine off and got out of the car, he was already at my side with the door open before I could even get my seatbelt off.

“Man your fast.” I chuckled.

“That and its freezing out here!” Harry said shivering.

“Well why don’t we get you inside.” I said pinching his cheeks as I talked to him like a little kid.

“Don’t tease me!” Harry said swatting my hand away. “Do you not think its cold?”

“No” I scoffed “I live here, remember?” Harry and I trudged our way through the snow to the entrance of the Diner and I couldn’t help but noticed it looked all too familiar. Harry opened the door and I walked in taking in my surroundings, when the memories came flooding back.

I stood there with my eyes on the ground as Harry spoke “Table for two maim”

“Sure thing, but call me Sue.” She said sweetly, wait… Sue? I cocked my head up to look at he short lady with greying hair “Hailey? Is that you? I haven’t seen you around here in a few years.” 

“Hey Sue, sorry… Just been busy I guess?”  God even that didn't even sound convincing to Sue led us to our booth I counted each booth as we went along 1…2…3…4…5 “NO” I said suddenly “N-not this one” I stuttered desperately looking at Sue as tears welled up in my eyes. She got the hint and preceded further down the row to the last booth.

“Here you go, ill let you two get settled and ill be back to take your drink orders.” She said “And Hailey…” I looked up at her with a slight smile “It’s glad to see you back here” she said patting me on the back before leaving.

“You’ve been here?” Harry asked raising an eyebrow.

“Well I do live here.” I said sarcastically.

“Why are you acting so weird?” Harry asked

“What do you mean?”

“Well ever since wee walked in here you have been violently searching the place like your waiting for something to happen.” Harry said.

“Its nothing.” I said lifting my menu, I hated this, I hated doing this to Harry, he was just trying to be nice, it was really nothing against him, and he had every right to question. I just can’t to tell him so bad; I want to tell him about the jerk who hurt me so bad, the one who made me so cautious, the guy who hold so many memories and the one who crushed me, the asshole who ruined my life, made me laugh then made me cry, the one who beat me and left all kinds of scars, the one in my dreams, and more importantly… the one who left me doubts about Harry.

I hadn’t noticed that I was crying till I saw Harry come and sit on my side of the booth and wipe a stray tear from my cheek. “It’s not just nothing.” Harry said shaking his head. “You don’t have to tell me, today at least ok? Its your day and I’m going to make sure you look stunning when you go to that dance, trust me Jake wont be able to take his eyes off of you” He said with a wink.

“Thanks.” I chuckled. 

“Now, something is bothering you here, so why don’t we leave and just stop somewhere in the way home yea?”

“Sure.” I said accepting Harry’s extended hand to help me out of the booth. Harry left a $20 bill on the table for the trouble and we headed out the door to head back home.
